The annual Christmas Market, our main fund raising event for our parish, took place in our Parish Centre on Sat. 30th November. The weather was dry and seasonably cold which helped to encourage a good attendance. The market is traditionally a great social occasion, where new friendships are made and old ones renewed. By all reports this year was no exception to the norm.
We raised in excess of €16,500, the highest figure for many years.making a major contribution towards the running costs of our parish.
A massive “THANK YOU” to everyone who helped in so many different ways to make the event such a success. Thanks are due to the numerous people involved in setting up and dismantling the stalls, baking, providing items to be sold, welcoming everyone, selling raffle tickets, making Christmas arrangements to order, providing food for everyone and finally clearing up at the end of the event.
We much appreciate all who supported the event, parishioners, friends and members of the community,far and near.
